The Future of Jobs and the Future role of TVET


Posted By matt rifaldi

The Future of work and jobs are changing fast as industry deploys more sophisticated manufacturing technology. In both higher and lower income countries large shifts are happening in the workforce as a result of globalization, automation and Artificial Intelligence. As a result, some jobs are moving elsewhere, others are being lost altogether and new jobs requiring new or adaptive skills are emerging. It is possible that some of the largest impact will be felt in developing countries as the dynamics of established development pathways may change dramatically. Education should be involved in this but is lagging far behind in understanding what changes are going on, where they are happening and how they should adapt to it. Please watch Dr. Steven McKee as he summarizes some of the information from the latest reports on this topic as he looks into the impact of the “second wave of globalization” which is driven by Industry 4.0 and the resulting challenges that will arise for education.
